Not prioritising limited-overs cricket over Tests – Bhuvneshwar

Ahead of the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, Bhuvneshwar Kumar said that ‘it has been a good experience’ to work under the tutelage of Rahul Dravid. With the senior team touring England, India have sent a makeshift squad for the limited-overs games with Dravid as the coach.

“It’s been good (working with Dravid). We spent 14 days in quarantine in Mumbai. After seven days, we were out in the gym. He’s kept things very simple. There are young guys, there are senior guys. Everyone is listening to him. It’s been a good experience. Once the matches come, there will be planning and we’ll get to learn more from him,” the pace bowler said in the presser.

The squad comprises quite a few inexperienced players like Chetan Sakariya, Prithvi Shaw, Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Suryakumar Yadav, Nitish Rana, Ishan Kishan, Rahul Chahar, K Gowtham, Krunal Pandya, and Varun Chakravarthy. Bhuvnsehwar said that as an experienced cricketer he is ready to chip in to guide the youngsters.
